Asian Community Centre
Will the 'House of Cards' be the sanctuary that the elderly Asian men of Wolverhampton need?
From the collection of:
John Swallow meets a group of elderly Asian men in West Park, Wolverhampton who are victims of cultural and social 'rules' that mean they cannot stay at home if a woman they are not married to is also at home. Consequently, they play cards all day in the park. Being outside during the summer is bearable but when the weather turns it's more of a problem. Luckily Wolverhampton council is stepping in to give the men their very own community centre or 'House of Cards'.
